“I lost many film offers” says Vivek Oberoi

“I lost many film offers” says Vivek Oberoi

Bollywood always faces a debate on Nepotism. Though Nepotism is present in almost all language film industries, Bollywood always gets a special place.

Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi who acted in many Hindi films was a well-known personality to Telugu people also as he has acted in a film’s like Raktha Charitra and Vinaya Videya Rama. The actor recently, opened up on what he went through in the Bollywood industry and also shared a few interesting things about late actor Susanth Singh Rajput.

Sharing though he bagged hit films, he hasn’t got chances, Vivek said, “After scoring a few good hits, I got a lot of praise and won awards. People were saying ‘oh my God, this is amazing!’ and then for one and a half years, I was sitting at home, nobody was coming to me with films, it defies all logic. As an actor I was delivering, box office was delivering, there were awards, critics were praising me but there was no work, kaam hi nahi tha.”

Meanwhile talking about how Bollywood actors are being affected by Nepotism he said, “It is breaking. Look at what Sushant Singh Rajput went through, or so many other kids go through, so much talent gets crushed because it was somebody’s decision, for reasons other than work, to just destroy someone. There is so much power in some people’s hands, there is a God complex, which needs to go. We can’t have too much power in their hand where they can think that they can make or break someone. People have said this to me and they actually believe it. It’s our fault as an industry that we’ve given that kind of power to them. That pedestal should be given only to talent — new, old, upcoming, established, that is the most important.”
